Vacation Bible School

KIDS @ First VBS Aug 7 & 8

“Game On! VBS invites kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Gear up for life's big game with Game On!

This is a free event open to all children 5 years - 5th grade.

Join us beginning at 8:30 am for bible stories, crafts, recreation and mission projects.  We are very excited to be able to offer a 1-hour skills training for everyone by the folks from Sanford Sports Clinic.

Everyone is invited to say on after VBS on the 8th as we will host a family fun BBQ from 5:30 - 8 pm. There will be a DJ and bounce houses for everyone to enjoy.

All of this will be taking place in our west parking lot.

Please register your children below one at a time.

Blessing of the Backpacks

A "Blessing of the Backpacks" in worship at the start of the school year offers encouragement to the excited and comfort to the anxious. 

Gracious God, we lift to you today, these students.

They stand here ready to receive your blessings and they commit themselves to study and learning in the school year ahead. We ask your blessing on each of them.

Further, we ask your blessing on these backpacks. They will hold the school work of each student and will be carried from home to school and back again. As these students carry these backpacks, may they be reminded of the love and care of this congregation that surrounds them each school day.

We pray as well for the teachers and administrators in our schools. May they also be sustained by your blessing. May they be reminded that this congregation embraces their call to teaching and learning and surrounds them with love and care as well.

We pray in the name of Jesus who we seek to follow day by day. Amen.
